Decision BC-10/3 decided to complete the development of a framework for the environmentally sound management of hazardous wastes and other wastes, including consideration of ways in which the framework and its elements might be linked to the issue of transboundary movement of hazardous and other wastes.
A technical expert group was mandated to undertake the work outlined above, taking into account the elements listed in the annex to the decision.
The technical expert group consists of 30 members nominated by Parties based on equitable geographical representation of the five regional groups of the United Nations. Each regional group nominated through its Bureau representative six members with specific knowledge and expertise in the field.
The group is open to observers and may also call on additional experts as needed.
